We couldn’t have made a better choice than going with True Colors of Italy
My wife and I decided to go to Italy for our anniversary and we couldn’t have made a better choice than going with True Colors of Italy to make this an unforgettable experience . We stayed at a very elegant and classy hotel in Monteprandone close to the medieval town. The following day we were taken on a tour to Acquaviva Picena, a medieval fortress. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and took their time to provide the historical context of the fortaleza. We also had to opportunity to go for a walk around the boardwalk in San Benedetto del Tronto and enjoyed a wonderful meal in one of the restaurants in the area. For those who love nature as well, the day after we went for a hike around Civitella del Tronto (not sure about the name of the area) which was a great way to escape from the city for a bit. On our last day we were taken to Ascoli Piceno, for a city tour full of medieval architecture. It was like going back in time. We know Italy is all about history but we’re glad we were able to make it beyond the traditional sightseeing in other cities of Italy. We are pleased with True Colors of Italy for their service and this wonderful experience. If you are somebody that tends to get overwhelmed with details about your trip, I think this would be a great option for you.
Wow! What a great way to experience Le Marche.
Wow! What a great way to experience Le Marche. We opted for two True Colors of Italy excursions during our stay.
The first excursion was the Geological one, where we visited Grotte di Frassassi. Truly spectacular geological features, unlike any we’ve experienced in the States. From there, a gorgeous mountain hike. A stop for cappuccino alongside a 16th century bridge was the icing on the cake.
The second excursion was Tivoli. The service at the hotel, which was beautiful and richly historic, was top notch. One of the most unique traveling experiences we’ve had. The Tivoli gardens were beautiful and likewise full of history. Our meal at Sibilla, debatably our best of our entire Italian vacation, was spectacular and hit every note. Tivoli’s close proximity to Rome makes it a great way to start or end your trip.
True Colors did an exceptional job coordinating everything for us. We spent the last few days of our Italy trip in Le Marche and it was a perfect way to close it out. Fred nailed all the logistics. We were well fed, caffeinated, and comfortable at all times. Even the drives were painless.
I cherished our time in Italy
My husband and I cherished our time in Italy exploring the historic, hilltop town of Tivoli. The 15th century boutique hotel, Residenze Gregoriane with its murals, mosaics and statues is a little hidden gem and our Al Fresco dinner at Restaurante Sibilla was truly romantic with the lighted backdrop of Roman temples, waterfalls and deep gorge. Villa d’ Este’s history, waterfalls, fountains and terraced gardens are truly amazing and not to be missed. All this on our first day of Fred’s tour.
From Tivoli we next stopped at San Benedetto del Tronto in the Regione Marche on the Adriatic coast, where we settled in and walked the town and sea shore and dined on fresh local sea food. Next our local tour guide, Marzia, explained the history of Aquaviva Picena, and its fortress, we visited a locally run small family vineyard and winery and finished our day at a local restaurant enjoying a delicious meal as true Italians do.
Our hats are off to Fred and Marzia, who both speak fluent English and Italian, for showing us these not so frequently explored Italian areas, “off the beaten path”, away from the tourist crowds, quiet and relaxing, in essence the Real Italy. Magnifico!
